"A police car and a screaming siren,
A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete,
A baby wailing and stray dog howling,
at any given moment could be what you hear on 'FMU,
and that's Entertainment... that's Entertainment..."
Ted Leo performed a WFMU-ified version of The Jam's "That's Entertainment" on The Best Show on WFMU this past Tuesday, March 13th, 2007 - Listen to the mp3 here. (6.7 MB)
It was performed during The Best Show on WFMU's second Marathon show for 2007, hosted by Tom Scharpling, who was joined by Radio Thrift Shop proprietress Laura Cantrell on the MC microphone.
